Kristen Wiig confirmed as 'Wonder Woman' sequel villain

Wiig will play the role of the Cheetah, who is one of Wonder Woman's greatest foes in the comic books. Wonder Woman 2 has been said to start filming soon and with that a few cast members have been announced.

Wonder Woman was released in June 2017 and earned more than $821 million at the worldwide box office. And if you can't quite picture Wiig as the villain, one artist on Twitter already whipped up some concept art of the actor in full Cheetah mode. "It's true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family", Jenkins wrote. Cheetah's abilities include superhuman speed, fantastic reaction time, strength, and durability.

That Hashtag Show were the first to report that Cheetah was the likely villain last week, and now Patty Jenkins has confirmed it. As previously reported, Kristen Wiig will indeed be inhabiting the antagonistic role opposite Gal Gadot's title superheroine in Patty Jenkins' highly anticipated return. "This is going to be wonderful!"
